{Christmas Bucketlist Recap // Bethlehem Revisited // Breakfast with Santa}

Christmas time truly is the best time. I don't like that it flies by at the speed of lightning, but I try to enjoy and savor every last minute of the season. We have so many Christmas traditions to fit into such a short month. We recently checked off another couple of things from our 2015 Christmas bucketlist.

The 2nd weekend in December we went to Bethlehem Revisited. I love that this is becoming one of our Christmas traditions. Bethlehem Revisited is an amazing event that our town puts on the first two weekends in December each year. It's like taking a step back into old world Bethlehem {2000 years ago} on the night that Jesus Christ was born. It's such a moving experience and I love to share it with my sweet family. The live nativity is so beautiful and touching and gives you all the feels.

We also went to breakfast with Santa @ the church {on the 12th}. It's such a fun morning! There is all kinds of breakfast foods, crafts and of course pictures with Santa!! Each kid brings a gift to donate for Christmas. This year Mason made magic reindeer food, a placemat for Santa's cookies, a mug, and a snowglobe. We had the best time!!

Another item we have checked off is watching the reindeer cam. I have it downloaded on my phone, but Mason's awesome teacher also played it for them several times. It just so happened that Santa was going to be feeding the reindeer during our Christmas party!! The kids loved it.

  1. Love your Christmas bucket list- something I want to do for next year. Holy cow, I can't believe it's already Christmas eve and everything will be done and over with tomorrow :( Merry Christmas to you and your family!


  2. We missed the live nativities in our area this year. We didn't realize that most of them happen at the start of December, so we have made note and will try again next year! What a fantastic bucket list!!

  3. We have an event close by called Journey to Bethlehem that is so similar. We've never gone before but I already said it's going on next years list. So much Christmas fun. I miss it already.


Thanks for the comments! Hope you are having an amazing day!!
